First a word about our range equipment:

In the past couple of years, we have suffered vandalism and deliberate damage to equipment and range facilities. Every member can and should help us combat vandalism of range equipment, by again reporting anything they may have witnessed to a club officer or director. All members have the duty to ask anyone they see damaging equipment or behaving in an unsafe manner to leave the range. We ask that you report this to a range officer who will treat all reports confidentially.
Lastly, after opening the main gate or red shed, please scramble the combination to prevent unauthorized users from gaining access. Unauthorized range users are stealing from every member who pays for their membership.

Officers are elected every even year.
Directors are elected every odd year.

Range Discipline
These range safety rules and regulations are designed to make our range as safe as possible and to safely and conveniently
accommodate as many of our range members as possible at any given time. All members have authority and the responsibility to
enforce these safety rules and regulations.

The Groveton Fish and Game Club, Inc. is not responsible for enforcing either State or Federal Firearms Laws. We urge any member
with questions about these laws to contact an attorney or law enforcement officer for this purpose.

General Range Use
* The range is open from 8:00 A.M. until sundown.

* With the exception of organized events or special club activities, the use of the range is restricted to members holding a range membership, and their guests. The range member must be present when his or her guests are using the range.

* All members are strongly encouraged to wear their badge in plain view and be able to produce their membership card when asked.

* The range on which an event is being held will be closed for that day to non-participants.

* No drugs or alcoholic beverages are permitted on club property at any time.

* No unarthorized ATV or snow machine use is permitted on club property at any time.

* Pets and children must be under the supervision of an adult, and are not permitted to run at will.

* For range safety, rifle shooters are encouraged to use an Empty Chamber Indicator when away from the shooting bench and when servicing targets downrange.

Before the new roof was constructed in 2009.

After the new roof was completed, All work was done by several dedicated range members.
With a little luck, the old roof on the right will be replaced by one that connects to the new roof.
And wouldn’t four more of the new and popular ambidesterous shooting benches be nice?
This is only possible with your membership support, so please renew early and encourage your friends to do so, also.

200-yard steel plate targets

Your memberships allow us to improve the range for more to enjoy, so please renew early and encourage your friends to do so, as well.
